Paleontology in the Land of ColorPainted Desert Visitor Center 1 Park Road, Petrified Forest National Park, AZ, United States
Join Petrified Forest NP paleontologists and paleontologist Christa Sadler for an exploration of the paleontology and archeology of some of the newly acquired parklands. We will car-camp in a remote area of the park (one which does not receive tourist visitation), and from this base camp, we will prospect in the surrounding badlands for new fossil localities and excavate fossils at known localities. We will have a chance to learn prep work in the paleontological lab and have time to explore the region for petroglyphs, incredible scenery, and whatever else we discover.
